This landmark hotel was a dump in every way a few years ago - what a transformation!! Really trendy decor, exceptional service and I really enjoyed the food. Rooms ok, surprisingly quiet if you consider that's its adjacent to the A1 - would definitely recommend depending on price you pay.

We had booked and paid in advance for a three day break to do a bit of north east sightseeing for the bank holiday weekend. When we arrived the reception was not the smiley welcoming one that you may expect when you arrive at a hotel. We booked an executive room and breakfast was included in the booking. The receptionist... More

Perfect for a unexpected stop. Reasonably priced and comfortable, clean room with a pretty good restaurant on the ground floor. The staff were great with the kids, helpful and efficient. Thank you for a bright end to a nightmare of a day.

Stopped over here on our way north. Located on the A1 roundabout at Scotch Corner so easy to find. Not an attractive building from the outside but plenty of parking. Excellent value even though we only booked a few days in advance. Room size was adequate for one night and included a fridge and safe. Bathroom was OK although the... More

On the A1M at A66 junction - great location. Now refurbished and pretty good. Plenty of parking, great choice of food in bar as well as restaurant. Rooms very acceptable - nothing special but all you need. Great value, either as an en route stop or a base for a couple of days. Leisure centre is separate - across the... More

Stayed here when I came to visit my boyfriend. The room was very clean and everything worked. The bed was large and very comfy and the choice from soft and firm pillows was a nice touch. Great big TV for evening time when we were relaxing and another nice touch was the complimentary water, orange juice and Kit Kat. I... More

We stayed for one night at a bargain price. Reception was efficient and our room was clean and comfortable. Complimentary water and orange juice and chocolate were provided and a full buffet breakfast was £5 per person! Use of the well equipped gym and pool across the car park was included. Parking was free.
